Abstract


English language learning is a process of problem identifying, defining and presenting. In the learning process, it is very important to cultivate students’ ability of critical thinking, especially to train students’ reading ability in college English teaching. And the very training should be the perfect combination of language and thought, which may actually realize the teaching goal. By the means of the training of critical thinking that enables students to identify problems on their own and realize what problems they do encounter, it may make the efficient English language teaching come true. In the meantime, teachers may employ the critical teaching methods in the class to let the students put forward the problems they encounter, from which the goal of English language teaching will be put into practice.
